    Registered Nutritionist Naomi (ANutr) explains OptiBac 'For your cholesterol'

    Who is it for?
    Live cultures supplement with Omega 3 for anyone seeking to support the maintenance of normal cholesterol levels.

    Good to know:

    • Live cultures and Omega 3 to support the maintenance of normal cholesterol levels.
    • This supplement requires the two different capsules to be taken together.
    • The hard capsule contains 1.2 billion AB-Life® live cultures and the billions count is guaranteed until end of expiry. The live cultures (AB-Life® Lactobacillus plantarum CECT 7527, Lactobacillus plantarum CECT 7528 and Lactobacillus plantarum CECT 7529) have undergone a randomised, double blind, placebo controlled clinical trial which was published in the British Journal of Nutrition in May 2013.
    • The soft capsule contains 300mg of ALA (Omega 3).
    • Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA) has undergone numerous clinical trials demonstrating its efficacy at helping to maintain normal cholesterol levels, and the ability of this particular Omega 3 (ALA) to support health has been validated by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA).
    • The beneficial effect is obtained with a daily intake of 2g of ALA as part of a balanced diet.
    • Our high-quality ALA is sourced from cold pressed virgin flax seed oil.
    • Scientifically proven to pass through stomach acidity and survive to reach the gut.
    • Easy to take on the go – no refrigeration required.
    • Suitable for: women during pregnancy and for those on a soy-free, dairy-free, yeast-free or gluten-free (for those with coeliac disease or an intolerance) diet.
    • Safe to take alongside statins or cholesterol-lowering medication and has no risk of undesirable side effects.
    • Recommended for daily use.
    • For best results take this product for a minimum of three months. 
    • Can safely be taken on an ongoing basis with no risk of undesirable side effects.
    • Available in one pack size of 30 hard capsules + 30 soft capsules.

    • Dear Optibac, I was so disappointed to find that the flax capsules with probiotics for cholesterol are not suitable for vegetarians and vegans. My favourite products are the Everyday but the old formula seemed to be more effective for me. I'm glad that you've removed the Titanium. It would be great to see your products in amber glass now in order to reduce plastic. Kind regards, Kim

    • I have a complicated health history of high cholesterol. Please remember a few months with an unhealthy diet will not enable you. This product worked because I took it as I should take it, a healthy diet and the right kind of exercise (very gentle) and over time it worked. I worked hard and stuck with it - first noticing regular bowl movements, which is why I started taking them. Thank you OptiBac,

    • I had my cholesterol measured in October 2015. In March, my cholesterol readings had dropped. Whilst levels are still very high, my doctor was pleased that the level has come down and is happy for me to continue with the probiotics and lifestyle changes to see if it reduces further.
